Our SHD cold mirrors on glass substrates are dielectric front surface mirrors used in applications that require a very high reflection in the visible range. The dichroic mirror coating system at the same time transmits the infrared (heat) energy up to approximately 2500nm. This allows the use of the high reflection mirrors in very efficient heat-light separation systems. The multilayer dielectric coating design allows a good resistivity of our cold light mirror coatings against heat, moisture and abrasion. If required, our SHD can be modified for different transmission- and reflection ranges, as well as in regards to the cut-on and cut-off wavelengths. Please use our custom coating inquiry form, to conveniently request your customized high reflection dielectric cold mirror coating.
